King Nereus Actor Dolph Lundgren Talks Aquaman Role!
Action icon Dolph Lundgren (Rock IV, Masters of the Universe, The Expendables franchise) recently spoke to the Las Vegas Review-Journal about his role as King Nereus in Warner Bros.’ upcoming Aquaman movie! “It is good to be king,” Lundgren said. “Basically, I try to keep the peace down there along with Amber Heard, who plays my daughter. She’s trying to convince me to join the right side. Then you have Nicole Kidman as Aquaman’s mother. We’re trying to avoid war between the surface dwellers and the people of Atlantis.” This will be an interesting dynamic to see and very different from the comics where Nereus wasn't Mera's father but instead wanted to marry her. there's still sure to be plenty of conflict between Aquaman and the other King under the sea.
The Aquaman cast includes Jason Momoa (reprising his role from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League) as the titular King of Atlantis, with Amber Heard as his wife Mera, Willem Dafoe as his mentor Nuidis Vulko, Temuera Morrison as his human father Tom Curry, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as his enemy Black Manta, Ludi Lin as fellow Atlantean Murk, Patrick Wilson as his half-brother Orm/Ocean Master, Academy Award-winner Nicole Kidman as his mother Atlanna and Michael Beach as Black Manta's father Jesse Kane. The film is directed by James Wan from a script by Will Beall, Geoff Johns and Wan. The sixth film in the DC Extended Universe, Aquaman opens in theaters on December 21, 2018.
